In Business is counting on its readers

From the pages of In Business magazine.

As we kick off 2019, we thought it would be a good time to remind all IB readers how much we value and rely on your input as we strive to deliver high-level business editorial content both in print and online. We have a talented and dedicated editorial team at IB, but we need to hear from you throughout the year to stay current on what’s happening inside your industries and your organizations.

So, with that said, here are some ways for you to engage with IB:

  • General story ideas: If there is something happening within your industry or at your organization that you think would be of interest to a general business audience, please direct these story ideas to Editorial Director Joe Vanden Plas at
  • Press releases: We are always looking for business news throughout the Greater Madison region, so send the latest on your organization to Departments Editor Jan Wilson at Items of interest include but are not limited to significant expansions, location changes, building permit approvals, and grants.
  • Department suggestions: If you would like to suggest someone for an “Executive Profile,” an interesting job that you think we should consider for “On the Job,” or a company in its first five years of existence that would make a good “Startup” feature, contact Jan Wilson at the email above.
  • Online content: To submit photos from a business event for the IB Gallery, or suggest a topic for a guest blog that we call Open Mic, or recommend someone for one of our online “Professional of the Week” profiles, please reach out to Online Editor Jason Busch at

Allow me to make a couple of things clear upfront. First, please know that while we take all editorial suggestions seriously, we cannot guarantee editorial coverage. Secondly, please do not send us any marketing press releases, or story ideas that are intended to promote your company. We have a number of great marketing opportunities at IB, and we’d be happy to direct you to the right person on our team for more information about those.

We value your feedback and ideas, and it’s vital that we hear from you throughout the year.
